At the beginning of May, Icelandair unveiled its latest special livery, Vatnajökull, a 757 painted to honor 80 years of aviation in Iceland. Now they’ve given us a look at how such a complex livery is applied.

Painting Vatnajökull

25 artists and assistants spent 2500 work hours applying 195 liters of paint to the aircraft’s 590m² skin, using 12 unique colors. Icelandair put together a video showing the intricate process.

Tracking Vatnajökull

Vatnajökull can be tracked with registration TF-FIR.
